Re: Latest Sisters purchase

Not sure if it says more about me or the t-shirt "designer" but at first glance I thought the person on the right was Hulk Hogan. :oops: :oops:

Re: Gothenburg, Mudd Club 15.05.85 Video snippet

I noticed that, looks like Von got a bit bored by it and stomped off too. Cheeky remark to open Train too. Aye, that was the bit I wanted to see, as from his comments it was clear that he was getting fed up with Wayne hogging the limelight. I wrote about it a few years back on my blog piece on this...

Good God, someone's wearing @Elamanamou's 'nasty' cap in the centre of the screen :lol: If you keep watching to the encore (around 65 minutes in), the annoying cap's owner finally removes said item (and waves it around in appreciation of Wayne's V-E-R-Y lengthy solo on KOHD) to reveal a more modern...

Re: It was thirty years ago today...

Strange that this anniversary has approached and passed with almost no fanfare. No 30th anniversary boxed set, no "The Making Of..." classic album documentary. But for many Sisters fans around the world, particularly in Latin America where the goth torch still flickers, this is THE Sisters album. Ha...

Re: Wayne wants to work with Von again!

...and Eldritch did ask Wayne if he'd contribute to the third album, even after Wayne said he was going to go join Craig. The rancour clearly set in around the Sisterhood shenanigans, and when it was clearly such a boon to their projects to feud through the media! This was all covered in the Mass M...

Eyes of Caligula certainly looks more immediately worthy of dissection than many of Von's more recent lyrics. He starts with the reference to the new Jerusalem, presumably a reference to the sentiments of Blake's poem which he went misty-eyed about on that Belgian radio show in 1984. "There is no us...

In-store appearance at Vinyl Fetish, Los Angeles, October 19

New on my blog, a look into an apparent visit to a record shop by TSOM on their first West Coast tour in 1983. https://sistersfan.blogspot.com/2020/04 ... rance.html
Other recent posts include Zurich and Glasgow 1985. Next post will therefore be on a 1984 gig!

Talking amongst old friends I've often used NMA as an example for the way forward for The Girls. They could even meet at Owlcotes to share a brew and compare notes ;) Also, I gather Headingley Rugby stadium, newly upgraded, can now hold a few gigs each year.

Defender of the faith, that is. Coin collectors know better! "Defender of the faith" eh? Sounds a bit like another well-known group's motto!
